Hybrid Work/School Options

Parking Options for Hybrid Work/School

Telework and hybird work are being embraced at USF for many roles, while a mixed schedule of in-person and online courses has been more widely adopted among students. Occasionally, those taking one of the approaches may still need to come onto the campus. It is your responsibility to determine whether it is more economical to buy a traditional semester/yearly permit or if an alternative option best suits you. Parking and Transportation Services will continue to review and explore parking permit options on campus, especially as it relates to hybrid schedules. Below are current alternative options available on the USF Tampa campus for hybrid work and/or school.
